Cory Bunnell's work on Breath of the Wild shows that these dreams may not be so far-fetched.The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has not only received near universal acclaim by critics and gamers alike, but it’s inarguably the most expansive and lavish entry to date.Since the game’s release a couple of weeks ago, many adventurers have managed to vanquish Ganon and witnessed the lengthy credits accompanied by variations of the franchise’s memorable score.One astute Redittor, Tizzlefix, noticed an anomaly in the developer section of the credits: Cory Bunnell.Upon further investigation, Tizzlefix discovered that Bunnell is an American developer.Nintendo games, although often localized by Americans working at Nintendo of America, are almost exclusively conceived and created by Japanese developers — especially titles in iconic franchises such as Super Mario and The Legend of Zelda.

iPhone cases can get pretty pricey these days, but do high quality and high prices always go hand in hand?Not if you’re talking about the ATGOIN TPU Hybrid Shock Absorbing Clear Case for Apple’s iPhone 7 and the ATGOIN TPU Hybrid Shock Absorbing Clear Case for Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus.At just $7.99 a piece on Amazon, it seems like a safe assumption that these crystal clear cases are low quality.But believe us when we tell you, that’s not the case at all.Or, if you don’t want to take our word for it, check out the ridiculously high 4.5-star rating from more than 520 customer reviews on Amazon.Long story short, if you want a high-quality, scratch-resistant clear case for your iPhone, this is the one.

Swords and zombies did well last month.The gaming industry generated $724 million in revenues in the United States last month, according to data-tracking firm The NPD Group.That’s down 21 percent year-over-year from $918.7 million.All segments — hardware, console and PC software, and accessories —  were down compared to the same period in 2016.But it’s revenues from console hardware that is falling the hardest.NPD tracks data from physical retailers and digital sales from certain online stores and publishers in the U.S. You will get data from third-parties on the Xbox Game Store or the PlayStation store, but there’s nothing from Blizzard’s Battle.net.So the following NPD data is only a snapshot of a larger and more dynamic market.“Total hardware spending in February declined 30 percent versus February 2016 to $204 million,” NPD analyst Mat Piscatella said in a statement.“Console hardware accounted for 82 percent of the total declines as both average retail pricing and units sold fell versus year ago.”But software didn’t do much better in large part because For Honor, Nioh, and Halo Wars 2 were the only major releases.Let’s get to the full software chart.

emerging technology development services companies in Abuja.“In the midst of our busy schedules we would try to find time to dash down to the electricity company to get electricity for the house,” Ufaruna said.Sometimes they wouldn’t make it in time.“If they are closed you have to stay in darkness til Monday when they open,” said Ufaruna.“You have circumstances where people are traveling and they have to come to the utility and there are long queues.”Some weekends, Ufaruna said he would see dozens of people milling around outside, waiting for the chance to get to the power company to pay their bills.

I wanted to share some notes on an experiment my agency performed recently, which resulted in Google believing our website was the canonical version of their own search engine optimization starter guide PDF — and ranking us in place of their own content for “search engine optimization” and thousands of other phrases.We perform many tests internally, both for our SEO Spider software and as an agency for clients.This particular experiment was purely for fun to highlight the issue we discovered, without the intention of hurting anyone, or indeed for any profit.We have now ended the experiment and removed the content.

In a heavily redacted report [PDF] that surfaced this week, the watchdog revealed that in December 2015, US Citizenship and Immigration Services ran a pilot program to check social media streams both manually and automatically for any signs of wrongdoing.The tests were repeated in April and August 2016 using different software tools to rifle through online profiles for troublemakers."USCIS based its conclusion on the tool's low 'match confidence.'Because the resulting accounts identified by the tool did not always match up with the applicants, officers had to manually check the results.If fleshy humans are the only way to check the information, they are going to be facing an enormous volume of data and may either miss key clues or draw the wrong conclusions.Nevertheless, the DHS isn't giving up on the scheme yet.

China’s Uber rival Didi Chuxing has officially opened its U.S.-based research lab.The new center is part of a move to suck up talent beyond Didi’s current catchment pool in China, particularly in the areas of AI and self-driving vehicles, but it doesn’t signal an expansion of its service into North America.The existence of the research center itself isn’t new.Last September, TechCrunch wrote that Didi had hired a pair of experienced security experts based in the U.S. — Dr Fengmin Gong and Zheng Bu — to lead the center, which works closely with another China-based facility that opened in late 2015, but now it is officially open.Dr Gong will lead the facility in Mountain View, and his team of “dozens of leading data scientists and researchers” will include former Uber researcher Charlie Miller.Miller rose to fame in 2015 when he hacked a journalist’s vehicle from a laptop 10 miles away in a pre-arranged stunt to demonstrate vulnerabilities within the automotive industry.

Over the past three years, the US government has reportedly used electronic warfare to disrupt North Korea's burgeoning efforts to develop and launch an Intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of reaching American shores.The military strategy, referred to as 'left of launch', was first established by chiefs in the Obama administration and is likely linked to a series of sabotaged test launches since 2014, the New York Times (NYT) reported on 5 March 2017.The decision to expand US cyber efforts reportedly came after President Barack Obama concluded that billions of dollars being spent on anti-missile systems was not having the desired result, with electronic tampering a cost-effective and stealthy alternative.Technical details remain thin but the clandestine operations appear to mirror American-Israeli efforts to combat Iran's nuclear programme by using sophisticated computer malware, later coined 'Stuxnet' by security researchers who analysed its source code."The strategy is based on a preemptive strike with new non kinetic technologies, such as electromagnetic propagation, cyber as well as offensive force to defeat nuclear ballistic missile threats before they are launched," one report from 2015 elaborated.Discussing the 'left of launch' approach, it added: "The strategy is to attack by electronic embedment or through the electronic radar signatures of the threat's command and control systems and the targeting systems of the threatening ballistic missiles."

The most effective horror movies offer a balanced mixture of gore, frights, and sly social commentary—and Get Out, a hit with both critics and audiences, does this better than most.But as director Jordan Peele explains, the movie’s crowd-pleasing ending wasn’t always what he had in mind for his film’s final act.Appearing on the Another Round podcast earlier this week, Peele was asked about Get Out’s alternate endings.If you’ve seen the movie, you know that the main character, Chris, manages to escape the racist clutches of his mind-and-body swapping captors after a hard-earned violent rampage and the perfectly-timed appearance of his best friend, Rod (LilRel Howery).However, Peele confirms that several much bleaker endings were originally considered, including ones in which Chris would be arrested for mass murder or even gunned down on the spot by the local police.The reason he ultimately decided against going in that direction: timing—and the changing level of awareness of the American public.
